GOD (AND ELFLAND) SAVE THE QUEEN Peace reigns in Elfland. Incredibly, King Oberon and his exquisite but willful queen, Titania, are at peace with one another. But still the FarSeers of the Selieghe Court are uneasy. They fear trouble is coming to the mortal world of England, which is close to Elfhame Avalon. King Henry VIII is ageing but the futures shown when the FarSeers lift the great crystal lens are unchanged. The rule of the son Great Harry finally succeeded in begetting will bring gray lives and a misery of dull oppression to England. Worse will come if his eldest daughter comes to the throne--a queen warped by fanaticism who might easily summon the Inquisition to rule by torture and fire, burning out heresy ... and every bright aspect of life. The prize at the end of the rainbow is the possibility of a red-haired queen with lion-gold eyes, brilliant with interest and curiosity, welcoming the blossoming of art, music, and literature. But now the last image is flickering, edged in a dark menace. Years before, Prince Vidal had tried to seize the child Elizabeth and replace her with a simulacrum who would soon die. Vidal had been wounded almost to death in the attempt--but so also had Denoriel, Elizabeth's principal protector. Denoriel is now healing--but so, unbeknownst to those of the Bright Court, is Vidal. And when Vidal wakes to himself, his determination to hurl England into a new dark age is fiercer than ever, fueled by his fury over his defeat and injury. Also, his Dark Court feeds on human suffering and dark emotions. To ensure his own power, he must at all costs prevent Elizabeth from coming to the throne. To gain this goal, Vidal has set in motion a plan of which Denoriel and his comrades are dangerously unaware. . . .

"This beautiful book will prove irresistible to both serious collectors of detective fiction first editions as well as to lovers of the artwork of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. A nostalgic survey of the artwork of detective fiction dustwrappers, it features intriguing chapters such as 'Damsels in Distress', 'Murder on the Move' and 'Pastimes in Purgatory'." "Lavishly illustrated with a 12 page colour section and over 300 large black and white illustrations, this book provides a unique opportunity to see first edition dustwrappers rarely available to the public. The wrappers are fully described, dated with credit to the publisher and the artist, if known. A wide range of famous detective writers is represented along with their detectives. Included in this fascinating volume is a chapter devoted solely to the artists, a consideration of their styles, and references to further examples of their work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

People and animals are never what they seem. Men turn into werewolves in Angela Carter's classic play The Company of Wolves (now turned into a film). A beautiful girl turns out to be a vampire in Vampirella, a Transylvanian fable shadowed by the Great War. Meanwhile, Puss in Boots is out on the tiles, in a breathless entertainment. In Come Unto These Yellow Sand Carter takes you inside the eerie paintings of Richard Dadd ' to hear the beings within - the monsters produced by represssion - squeak and gibber and tell the truth'. In her introduction Angela Carter discusses the problems and delights of writing for radio: 'Radio retains the atavistic lure, the atavistic power, of voices in the dark, and the writers who gives he words to those voices retains some of the authority of the most antique tellers of tales'. The book includes nine reproductions of pictures by or of Richard Dadd.
